Cinder Tales is based upon Cinderella (with all the fairy tale characters); but in Cinder Tales, Ella does not go to the Prince's ball.
Instead, the Fairy Godmother gives Ella a recognition that the world, when seen accurately, already IS the ball: it is a sacred place.
Ella receives her magic slippers from the Fairy Godmother but the White Bird takes one and drops it at the ball; and so the search for the foot that will fit the shoe commences and Ella is crowned.
In an energetic coda, the Ugly Stepsisters murder Ella in her bath, whereupon Ella reincarnates four times before being restored to the Prince. The Ugly Sisters boil themselves alive - and end up as cows in the Araluen Valley.
The show ends with a "moo"!
